    Connection OS X to Ubuntu?
    OK, some help please. How do I connect a MBP with Tiger to Ubuntu 7.10? Say I have Ubuntu installed from scratch and the MBP is connecting via a wireless network.

    Can some one help me or point me in the right direction?

    Your post is a little unclear. What exactly do you mean by "connect." And is ubuntu installed on the macbook pro or on another machine?

    You will have to make sure that ssh is installed on Ubuntu.

    From the command line (terminal)
    sudo apt-get install ssh

    If you use the synaptic package manager, just search for ssh and install both the client and server.

    Once that is done, you can open a terminal on either computer and type

    ssh <your username>@<the other computers ip address> and hit enter
    if your username is the same on both computers, then
    ssh <the other computers ip address> is good enough

    If both of your computers are behind the same router you should have no problems, if you are trying to get from a location on the internet to your computer at home, you will have to set up port forwarding on your router and give your computers a reserved ip address (check your router documentation for how to do this)

    hope that helps

    cheers

    Is SSH really the best way? Just trying to share folders really. I guess I should have explained better. I'm trying to have my itunes share for my MBP on the Ubuntu machine.

    Ahh..okay...

    In that case Samba works very well and is trivial to setup on Ubuntu. I personally don't use it anymore so I can't help you with the setup, but you should be able to find the answer on the Ubunut forums but basically apt-get install samba, setup file sharing for windows on your mac and connect to it from your Ubuntu box

    Hope that helps
